About

My thesis is entitled: ‘Magical Lives: life-writing, performance magic and crafting the self in the Victorian period and beyond’. It primarily examines the autobiographies of nineteenth-century magicians and the analogous representations of fictional magicians and conjuring in Victorian literature. My other research interests include occulture, magical realism, second-generation Romantic poetry and fantasy fiction.
